Honey Bunches of Oats – Smile While You Shake It #bunchofbeats

This is a compensated post brought to you by Mom It Forward and Honey Bunches of Oats.   All opinions are my own.

Smile While You Shake It PartyI recently hosted a Smile While You Shake It Party with Honey Bunches of Oats.  This party was a brunch with local bloggers and we had a lot of fun chatting, dancing, laughing, and eating.  After we ate Honey Bunches of Oats and a few other goodies we danced with our Honey Bunches of Oats cereal boxes to shoot our Smile While You Shake It videos!

Smiling and ShakingSmiling and shaking it!

Honey Bunches of Oats DiscussionThese bloggers are discussing all the world’s problems…or which cereal to try next, or planning their dance moves for their Smile While You Shake It video?  It’s hard to tell.

“Smile While You Shake It” caught your attention, didn’t it?  It did mine too when I first heard about this new campaign from Honey Bunches of Oats.  Smile While You Shake It is their new anthem they put together to celebrate what it means to start the day off with a smile. The fun and upbeat song, inspired by Samba beats, featuring musical artists Domino Saints, incorporates cereal boxes and breakfast utensils as percussion instruments.  How fun?  It’s a catchy tune that will be in your head for days {you’ve been warned!}.  It’s an easy song for anyone or any family to dance…err, shake to.

Why video the shaking?  Well, because you could win $500 for doing so!

Do you want to win $500 gift card?  Visit the  Honey Bunches of Oats Microsite now and show your fine dance moves {or simple shaking} as you Smile While You Shake It.  They’re giving away a $500 gift card weekly so be sure to submit a new video every week!  The video is only 15 seconds long and takes less than a minute to create start to finish!  It’s very easy and I promise it’s fun!  You can’t make a video without smiling, it’s impossible.  The Smile While You Shake It Contest ends 6/6/14 at 11:59pm EST.  I would love one of my readers to win so please come back and let me know if you do!
